Patrick Williams is a student at Cal State Long Beach that will be graduating this semester with a Masters of Fine Arts in drawing and painting . Patrick’s paintings are “an attempt to wrestle with the limitations and the assets of painting in the content of a post digital paradigm; both as art object and as their eventual life as digital files.” Patrick wanted to show the way humans view art and how they feel about them, which at times can be tricky, bringing mixed emotions. Patrick’s art exhibition was quite interesting. Many of the canvases had textures on them and conveyed a twist on a lot of very famous art in our world today. The piece I liked the most was the piece I posted a picture of down below. The gray in the photo reminded me of a vinyl record which connected me to music. Overall, the exhibit was pretty cool and me talking about it does it no justice, go check it out at the Cal State Long Beach art galleries.
